I woke up early (4:30am) thanks to L and am now feeling a bit sick. Off to work today and I will be telling my head of department, I'm sure he'll be fine but I will be causing him a headache with who can take on my classes.
I hope everyone else is ok.

Good luck telling DS and i hope you feel better. Afm i'm feeling a bit strange. I got really stressed yesterday as a family member is in a bad place emotionally. Then a friend guessed i was pregnant (I am not doing well as this is the 2nd person to guess) due to me not drinking and kept telling me not to get my hopes up as it is early days etc and kept driving the point. Now worrying that something has gone wrong and convincing myself i can 'sense it'. All v irrational and i guess fears about the baby are a natural part of the course. But really not a nice feeling. Got a hectic day at work but hoping it will help me be distracted rather than course further stress. 5+3

DS hope it goes well telling your boss and you're not too tired later
GB have a lovely lazy day and take it easy
Rio - don't stress about it, it's really unfair for someone to say things like that keep positive x
AFM - thank you for all the messages yesterday. It ended up being a crazy day with spending most of the day on the phone telling people our news. H and I did manage to go out for a nice lunch and bought a couple of sleep suits, couldn't resist. Still feels very surreal we have seen baby now, wish the scan hadn't been cut short, H assures me that for the next one he'll be ok. My dates were out forward by a day meaning I'm now due on 31 October, Halloween baby!!

DS - hope all goes well at work, and that you manage an early night!
GB - I'm exhausted just reading that, keep your feet up today.
Rio - that was uncalled for by your 'friend', I hope you're ok.
MrsL - yay for a pumpkin baby
AFM - first day in a new school and I'm a bit nervous, only twenty days of placement left until I qualify though. This is the first time I've been awake early in a month, and feeling very queasy...I think I've only avoided MS thus far by being lazy! Not sure if I'll make it back on, so hi to all who follow

Good luck today Saff xx

DS, hope the meeting goes well
GB hope a lazy day helps gives you a chance to relax
Rio- how charming of your friend, try and keep optimistic when there no reason not to
Mrs L, so glad it all went well yesterday- 12 weeks seems such a long way off at the moment!
Saff, fx for a good 1st day, hope the nausea wears off.
AFM, another lazy day, just phoned the surgery to see what they want me to do and I have to go in and pick up a booking pack. Took my last IC today and by far the strongest line yet- I've got come clear blue digitals and tomorrow will be a week since my last so hoping it will show 2-3 weeks. Working tomorrow and fri and need to stock up on snacks- I seem to be doing ok as long as I eat every 2 hours and given its bliss if I have a break in a 12 hour day I need to make sure I have supplies on the run!

Afternoon all, quickt here as feel crap
Huge bleed yesterday, quite smelly [bleugh] swabs taken, warned could be mmc, scanned today, hb fine and dated too so edd 25 November, nuchal in a fortnight but called my consultant to say I don't need scan on tue as fetal medicine have dated me but he wants to scan me too, so scan tue to look for soft markers and nuchal following week! I am honestly grey haired with this monkey!!!
So if all ok delivery 39 weeks which is roughly 17/18 nov which is 3 days after my bday and 2/3 days before Williams. I'd be happy with section then as don't want it on Williams bday. Consultant said to speak to him
On Tuesday about it and he will document it all.
Vomited for first time today pounding head ache, have to wait for swabs as might need antibiotics
Take care all x

Rioja, glad you're taking it easy, stocking up on snacks is a good idea!
RF - sorry you're having such a scary time, huge hugs coming your way I hope that baby behaves from here on in and the spotting finally stops. Very reassuring that they heard a nice strong heartbeat, must be such a relief! xx
AFM - I'm knackered, and in bed already First day was fab but a real shock to the system.

It's not spotting saffron, never has been. It's full flow bleeding (med/heavy flow), I really wouldn't be so panicky over spotting
eta also tbh it's not that reassuring ( you don't hear the hb, they just point it out, not that hearing it is any better tbh) and they just measure bleed size. all it means is there's still a hb. With the amount of blood and now an infection it's not a relief tbh
23/04/2014 at 18:39
Really sorry RF, I wasn't meaning to belittle it, I hadn't realised that you weren't out of the woods yet. Will be keeping everything crossed for you and sending lots of strong baby vibes, really hope everything works out ok for you, xx

Tbh I'm probably going to leave first tri here now, I seem to be constantly moaning here and I don't want to ruin the experience for others. I did find those comments quite patronising saffron, not sure you know my history (i have explained before) but numerous losses and a late loss, so really it's not a case of baby starting to behave and having the reassurance if a strong hb (they certainly don't tell you it's strong, they tell you there is one). So it's probably quite a bumpy road for us really and I don't want to bring the thread down constantly.
Good luck with your pregnancies everyone. Those on DW il still see you there.

RF - please don't leave, and don't think you're ruining the experience for others. Sorry to hear that the bleeding has been compounded by an infection xx
GB - I hope you've managed to have a lazy day today.
Rio - I'd ignore your friend, their comments aren't helpful x
Mrs L - I'm so pleased that your scan went well!
Rioja Lu - glad to hear you've had a lazy day too.
S - glad your first day went well.
AFM - I didn't get to tell boss in the end as he's very stressed about a course inspection we're having by one of the exam boards tomorrow. I think I'll leave it till Friday.

I'm so sorry RF, I had no idea about your history. I've been avoiding BT for a long time (until recently, of course) and I assumed you were a new user as I didn't recognise the name and you had a low post count, although I am now wondering if you were previously someone else on Hitched BT. I really am very sorry and never meant to come across as patronising, I was trying to be reassuring and supportive, but I feel really awful about upsetting you now. Please don't leave, you don't bring the thread down and we are all here to support each other, xx
